CNN apologizes for Obama gaffe in Bin Laden graphic

The Raw Story reported A Monday night broadcast of CNN's Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer confused America's "number one enemy" with one of America's most popular senators, RAW STORY has learned. CNN apologized for the error, which came after a series of incidents in recent months in which Illinois Democrat Senator Barack Obama was subtly or directly linked with militant Islamic personalities who have been hostile to the United States.

His middle name is Hussain and his father was a Muslim.
During the Jan. 1 broadcast of Wolf Blitzer's nightly news program, a pre-commercial preview of the show's next segment included a story on the hunt for Al Qaeda's leadership. Over a photo of Osama Bin Laden and his second-in-command Ayman Al-Zawahiri, Blitzer stated, according to the transcript, "Plus, a new year, but the same mission. Will 2007 bring any new changes in the hunt for Osama bin Laden?" But instead of asking "Where's Osama?" the graphic over the two Islamists read "Where's Obama?" referencing the surname of popular Illinois Democratic Senator Barack Obama.
I wonder how much Hillary had to pay them to make that mistake.
A later segment of the show, which took up the topic of the 2008 presidential election, did discuss Senator Obama's political prospects if he chooses to run for president. Blitzer apologized during this morning's coverage of the Gerald Ford funeral. "I just want to make a correction, an apology, Soledad, for what we did yesterday. In 'The Situation Room,' we had a bad graphic,"
Sounds like John Kerry and his "bad joke". Kerry is a bad joke, and so is CNN.

this is the most what you expect from unilateral narrow-minded rednecks ruling America.

They just attacked him because his father is Muslim.

what sort of pathetic losers are these people!
